I started the Lupron injections on the 4th and sticking myself was not near as bad as I thought it would be. When I received the box of medications I saw a couple packs of very large needles and was a little nervous about how I was not going to hit muscle....these suckers were the length of a pinkie finger. When I went in for my appointment on Friday the nurse informed me that those needles were actually used to draw the medication and I immediately exhaled with relief. Yesterday was the last day of the birth control pills so I have to start my period by Friday in order for us to be able to have our IVF completed this month, if not I will have to wait until next month. So praying Aunt Flow will pop up within the next few days.
